Mouldy Rugs by Lizan Freijsen

Dutch artist Lizan Freijsen is obsessed with stains.  She also likes moulds, mossy lichens and other messy detritus of organic decay.  She sees beauty in these works of nature and has designed a series of rugs inspired their patterns and colours.  These rugs are oddly compelling and repulsive at the same time and challenges us to reassess our preconceptions of beauty.  Unusual way to decorate your floor or wall perhaps, but also delightfully thought provoking.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.
